@honey cowl god help me
@lemons! This is the Kickstarter project, where I heard about it: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slambert/make-capitalism-work-for-me
@EvanDeSimone He makes that point a few times! You should read it when you have time :)
@theunread full-on, and I'm so happy to have this platform to finally spread the Good News.
@eraserface our plan is to pool our money in one joint acct we pay bills from, buy groceries, etc, then to withdraw $x every two weeks into our own "private" acccounts. Say $100 a week, which you can use to buy yourself whatever you want without having to feel weird, and buy the other person stuff and feel like you paid for it, or save up for something big and unreasonable that you don't have to explain!
@apples and oranges Ha, I glossed over that Breakfast at Tiffany's thing but on second look it is, yeah, quite the journalistic flourish. And yes totally re: women and didn't mean to implicitly minimize!
@Kthompson lol, preach
@This is my new user name Oh yeah, exactly. I definitely think there's a distinction between owns the company and works on a government salary and their job is to help you do your job well, not make money off of you. Haha
@This is my new user name Okay maybe I am evil, but still, effectually the employees are just giving cash. it's not like it's a personal gift from you to your boss-- which would still be borderline inappropriate but at least has potential to make some sense, if it's a souvenir or a book you think they would like or something you both talked about or you're friends and it's their birthday. I think this would be different in a non-profit industry or somewhere where your boss is overworked, underpaid, and a relentless advocate and supporter for his or her employees -- but not a CEO who is presumably making money off the work you do!
